How can an abuse accusation be documented?

If you have a loved one in a Chicago nursing home, you will know first-hand how hard it is to witness an elderly person's deterioration and growing dependence. This deterioration can make the person especially vulnerable to abuse by nursing home staff as well as residents, and unfortunately this is a relatively common problem.

Distracted driving statistics you and your family should know

If you live in the Chicago area and you and your family members drive cars, you need to educate your family about the dangers of distracted driving. Although many people dismiss these dangers, and even operate their smartphones while they're behind the wheel, a quick review of the following statistics should be enough to open their eyes.

Injuries as a guest in an Illinois home

When you visit a friend or go to a dinner party in a private home, you obviously expect that you will be entering a safe environment. Therefore, when you become injured as a result of visiting someone else's home, it will probably be quite shocking. You may have to seek expensive medical treatment and take unpaid leave from work in order to recover, and this may leave you wondering whether you can and should take legal action.

Suffering injuries after a serious Illinois car accident

Being involved in a serious car accident can be life-changing. Not only can it affect you from a financial point of view due to damage to the vehicle, medical bills and lost wages, but you will almost certainly suffer from an emotional perspective too. The stress that a car accident can create, as well and the pain and suffering that results from injuries can create a great deal of tension and trauma.

Is your elderly parent affected by nursing home bullying?

If you have a parent or another loved one in a nursing home, it is likely that you assume the trust of the carers to take care of his or her every need. While many carers are responsible and highly conscientious staff, there is a growing epidemic when it comes to understaffing in nursing homes. Therefore it is becoming increasingly common for issues to arise because nursing home residents are not getting the attention and care that they need and are entitled to.

The most common types of nursing home abuse

When you allow a loved one to reside in a nursing home, you will want to feel safe in the knowledge that he or she is receiving the best care possible. While you can never monitor your loved one's care for every minute of the day, you may be able to sense when something is wrong or when they are being mistreated.

Is my landlord liable for my fall?

When you are a tenant in an apartment building, you are not in full control of many aspects of building safety, nor are you legally responsible for it. Therefore, when you suffer an injury in your apartment building, e.g., broken bones from a fall down the stairs, your landlord may be liable.
